Off-topic - What happened to Mindboards

Postby floydbloke » Mon Jun 23, 2014 7:01 pm

This is rather off-topic so mods please delete if it is deemed inappropriate.
Does anyone know what has happened to the Mindboards forum? The link that used to take me there now just lands on a sourceforge ‘description’ page.
If it has gone for good is there an archive available anywhere? There was some useful reference material on there, particularly for Bricxcc/NXC, which I still use on my NXTs from time to time.

Sourceforge has finally withdrawn the hosted apps platform, including the phpBB service that Mindboards was using:
https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/communi ... etirement/

My understanding is that the Mindboards folks are currently looking into the options of what to do next.

Thanks Andy. That explains it. I do hope it gets revived. Although quiet of late, it is a good and helpful community.

Today I exchanged emails with one of the moderators. He tells me they have a new platform available and all the data to migrate on it. The one thing they are missing at the moment is that precious thing called time. Encouraging news, we just need some patience.
